EVE-Pro docker installation behind a proxy

Post by rene0815 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 5:35 pm


I upgraded from EVE-Community to EVE-Pro, but the docker installation failes.
My EVE-Server is sitting behind a http-proxy so I added the proxy configuration to "/etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d".
But I think this only applies to docker itself but not to any containers that want to download packages.

Now the installation process stalls at a later stage. I believe this is because the containers try to download directly.
I need to admit that I never used docker before so this is pretty new for me.

Any help on this is appreciated.

Many thanks,

First you havr to take in account this stuff...

Make sure your eve can reach internet, fqdn is configured right and you can ping named like: ping www.eve-ng.net
in cli from root
1. update your eve with version 2.0.5-22:
wget 'http://www.eve-ng.net/repo-testing/pool ... _amd64.deb

2. run dpkg -i eve-ng-pro_2.0.5-22_amd64.deb
Reboot eve

3. update your proxy settings:
Use vi or nano, where IP is your proxy IP, port as well must be ours.
WARNING: syntax is very important in this file.

cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/00proxy

Acquire::http::Proxy "";
Acquire::https::Proxy "";
Acquire::ftp::Proxy "";

rule for FW if such exisit:
FW rule for EVE lic server
protocol: https
Direction: out/in

this is our EVE lic server IP.


Offline dockers is possible to install as well:


download, load in your eve, (root) run script.
